SKF Introduces Extensive Range of Roller and Engineered Chain Solutions Ideally Suited for Power Transmission and Conveyor Applications

(Archive News Story - Products mentioned in this Archive News Story may or may not be available from the manufacturer.)

890 Forty Foot Rd., P.O. Box 352
Lansdale, PA, 19446

Press release date: September 20, 2012

SKF introduces an extensive range of roller and engineered chain solutions ideally suited to meet the demanding requirements of power transmission and conveyor applications in the food and beverage, mining and cement, and steel industries, among many others. The chains join a growing portfolio of SKF power transmission products offering optimized performance and long service life.

Standard SKF transmission, or roller, chains (pitch sizes in. to 3 in.) feature through-hardened, shot-peened, and ball-burnished inner and outer link plates with wide waist; case-hardened precision-ground pins; precision cold-rolled bushings; and through-hardened, shot-peened solid rollers. These features ultimately provide increased fatigue strength, higher resistance to damage from shock loads, maximum wear resistance, and extended service life.

SKF chains can perform reliably in temperatures from -4 F to 300 F (stainless steel versions in temperatures from -4 F to 750 F) and can be supplied with rivet or cottered design. All comply with the appropriate ANSI, ISO, or DIN standard and are pre-stressed, run-in, and manufactured according to strict quality control. Non-stainless types are pre-lubricated.

Among options, stainless steel chains offer corrosion-resistant solutions for food-grade applications, nickel or zinc coatings can add protection to carbon steel variants, and a wide variety of attachment chains are available.

Custom-designed solutions, supported by more than 100 years of SKF power transmission industry knowledge, can be developed to satisfy particular demands.
